In fact, in a digital environment where pictures can be easily appropriated and manipulated, visuals can be created to support referential and predicational
patterns aimed at representing immigrants as enemies.
This means that in predicational
context any general term can be divisive or collective.
Firstly, nominalizations which take the form of NPs (e.g., John's death) can occur in both predicational
(SoA) and propositional (potential fact) contexts (John's death surprised me/ occurred at noon), whereas those with the form of a nonfinite clause (e.g., John's having died) are grammatical only in propositional contexts (John having died surprised me/*occurred at noon).
That is, as a subclass of verbalizations the function of causative affixes is to build up a predicational
structure around the LS of a(n) (potential) argument.
The use of the notion of an objective intention to account for "intentionless invention" thus marks a radical restructuring of the concept of intention in which its organizational, teleological structure is taken over without its predicational
link to an organizing, strategizing subject.
In accordance with dominant stances found in the data, the most frequent predicational
strategy qualified the Gulf as eternally or exclusively Arabian (e.g., "Arabian Gulf forever," "Arabian Gulf only").
While the nuclear predication may be the best documented case, it has been argued that predicational
configurations abound in Grammar.
The role of Location has to be spelled out whenever the predicational
frame requires this role to be specified independently from the discourse setting.
The former are analysed as restrictors, while the latter are SATELLITES, which enter into a predicational
rather than a hierarchical relationship with the layer they are used to modify.
In Dik's terms, "predicates of this class too take a predicational
complement describing a SoA that necessarily occurs simultaneously with the SoA described in the main clause" (DIK, 1997, p.113) Examples of this kind of predicate are: comecar (to begin), continuar (to continue), acabar (to finish).
Using (18) as a source of data for various other types of anaphor (specifically, the predicational
it in line 3, and the first-order it in line 6), we can illustrate how the various types of resolution heuristics specified above operate.
The critical reader will be left with many unanswered questions: Must we choose absolutely between predicational
and propositional logic?
(5) As a prepositional determiner, de embeds a DP with a predicational
structure, such as is seen in possessive constructions in Romance, which also extend to Romanian, as shown in Stefanescu (1997).
Therefore, the close connection between I-topicalization and reconstruction must really be due to predicational
semantic forms like (M39) rather than to pragmatic conditions.
This is for the straightforwardly nominalistic reason that merely predicational
distinctions do not make real distinctions.
